Published in City Press. Huawei has once again managed to impress with its new smartphone cameras – all four of them – on the P30 Pro, which went on sale in South Africa earlier this month.
The company says its new smartphone is aimed at creative individuals, style leaders and those who appreciate the arts; and that the new cameras are a fundamental breakthrough after decades of digital camera technology development.
The result is a Leica quad-camera setup, which includes a 40MP wide angle lens, a 20MP ultra-wide angle, an 8MP telephoto and a new Time of Flight sensor. A first for smartphones, the Time of Flight sensor measures the distance between the camera and object, allowing for more artistic shots with multilayer bokeh effects. Bokeh is the cool-looking blurred effect quality cameras give the out of focus and background parts of an image.
